Underbcoi Utterings. Mtiss Nellie Summerville gave a most delinhtful concert here on 21st. of last month, and met with a fine re cept;ion. It is rare that t he esidents of the districts so far removed from the big centres are offeled the oppor tunity of hearing an artiste of Miss Summrnerville's attainments, and we are grateful to the lady accordiogly. On the occasion referred to, the en joyableness of the.entertainment was eaded to by Miss Bell (Paignie, who not only acted as accormpanist, but also gave a delightful recitation), Mr. J. Bannon, Mrs. IHCummel, JMlessrs. J. Summers, and Nulty. A narrow escape .rcrm a serious ac cident was experienced by the little daughter of Mr. Mason, ou a recent date.

E?ortunately the driver had realised the danger, and the horse was pulled up, the little one escaping with a...

CARWARP BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 6 December 1916

CARWARP BRANCH. The information published in the "Argus" recently that the first divi dend on the new crop would be only j6, has raised a roar throughout the *heat areas. At a meeting of the above branch on Saturday night, the matter was very earnestly discussed, and the language used regarding those who may be supposed to have given grounds for the statement was hot enough to have scorched. It was eventually unanimously decided that unless a dividend of at least 2/6 per bnushel, clear at the railway station, was guaranteed by the Commission, not one bag of wheat would be deli I vered by any member of the branhb. Sit is certain that no farmer can finance the. harvest on less than the sum mentioned, and if the wheat is to be sold at all, it must be tinanced. And thus the matter stands, and we await the onuteome
